If a person is in very much pressure and tensed and there's no way he/she can get out of this mental torture, his/her parents are not willing to understand anyhow. A last option that is left is to end his/her life so that he can rest in peace, but if people committing suicide goes to hell.. Where can he rest in peace?????

Please I will like to appeal to everyone that no matter are tensed or pressured and no matter how bad and hopeless the situation is, we should not take our own lives. Suicidal spirit has a mission to destroy the souls of men and send them to an everlasting place of tormrnt known as hell fire. So please do not take your life, you can always ask Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins and ask him for help and he will turn things around and you will be glad and full of life again. God bless you. I love and Jesus loves you best.

WHAT SHOULD ONE DO IF IN DEEP DESIRE TO DIE, BUT IS STILL WITH THOUGHTS OF PAIN THAT IT WILL CAUSE TO THE PARENTS DUE TO HIS DEATH?

guest

you should tell them your feelings, your life is very precious

PLEASE, DO NOT LOSE ONE MORE MINUTE, go talk to a true man of God NOW. Jesus will give you a reason to live. Jesus died for you already because He loves you. You don't have to die.

I think I have a right to choose ,
When to me life becomes intolerable

guest

You definately have, no one can deny that. It's your life and your choice...unfortunately it does ham the ones left behind you, but it's your life, and you live for no one else but your yourself...

guest

The problem with suicide is that it doesn't accomplish what you want. You can kill your physical self and no longer feel pain, but not your consciousness...your soul survives....EMOTIONAL PAIN REMAINS. You see EVERYTHING and CANNOT do anything physically. It's just FRUSTRATING.

Hmmm... my husband recently took his life. He had struggled to overcome tremendous emotional pain for many years. I certainly do hope that what you say is incorrect. Though he left a mess here, I cannot be angry with him- he had an illness that at last won. I do hope that he can see everything and perhaps finally find joy in this life, if only as an observer. Such a waste. Such a waste.
